Remembering 9-11… Patriot Day… National Day of Service and Remembrance… Sept. 11, 2021, when America was attacked by al-Qaeda, will live in the hearts of Americans forever… a series of coordinated attacks on U.S. soil that killed nearly 3,000 people from nearly 80 different countries and many who suffered from the after-effects of that horrific day… Then President George Bush said, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.” Those words still ring true today.
As always… Please pray for all of our first responders and healthcare providers.
Important information you need to know… the FNB Community Bank issued a consumer alert to its customers Aug. 30 that said… The Biden administration has proposed requiring all community banks and other financial institutions to report to the IRS on all deposits and withdrawals through business and personal accounts worth more than $600, regardless of tax liability. This indiscriminate, comprehensive bank account reporting to the IRS can soon be enacted in Congress and will create an unacceptable invasion of privacy for our customers… First American Bankers Association, the Bank Policy Institute, the Consumer Bankers Association, and others argued that the “new reporting requirements for financial institutions would impose cost and complexity that are not justified by the potential, and highly uncertain, benefits.” This type of intrusiveness is unforgivable…
